Last Night I Dreamed That I Was The New Frank Underwood And Here’s Why

The Frank Way Of Life

Frank Underwood, Your New Life Coach For a Quick Boss Up!

It’s weird sometimes what can inspire you in life but for some strange reasons I identify a lot with Frank Underwood. Many things in his mindset and vision have that “I want to be like this guy” effect on me(when you take away all the killing part of course).

For those who don’t know about Frank Underwood, he’s a fictionnal character from a tv show called “House of Cards“. The show evolves mostly around Frank’s journey to become the president of the United States. It also gives us an overview of the political world with all the dirty tactics and power moves they use for their rise to power.


I heard rumors that the show will be cancelled before the 5th season. I was biting my nails to the bones until they cleared that up. The new season will actually be launched on May 30th (yeah god is that great). To be honest, like most of the die hard fans of “House Of Cards”, I had a huge question mark on my face after the last season.

The subconscious works in mysterious ways, I don’t know if it’s because I was intensely thinking about how the new season will turn out but I literally made the same dream 3 nights in a row. In my dream, I’ve let Frank be my life coach for a day and the outcome was crazy.

Warning: I’m not insane

As crazy as it sounds, I’ve dreamed that I was reincarnated as Frank Underwood himself living my day to day life through his approach. In my dream, I saw my boss get tossed in the bushes Underwood style, my wife was a HOT asian version of Claire Underwood. With a new sense of confidence and mastery, I could feel for a second that I had the world in the palm of my hand.


Before “the butchery begins” as Frank would say, we will overview the key lessons that makes Frank Underwood your all time favourite baddass!

1 Never Let Your Circumstances Determine You

Frank doesn’t come from a rich family and he had an abusive father (he even peed on his father’s grave goddam it!) but he turned those circumstances around and built himself from the ground up.

Whatever obstacles or failed power moves attempts he’s facing, Underwood turns the table around, strategize and comes back like the boss he is. I think those key moments in the show got to me because sometimes my first idea is to give up in such situations. Now I believe that those situations could’ve been handled better if I had activited the Frank Underwood in me(we all have one).

2 Don’t Trust Every Smile You Meet


Cc: Netflix

“Trust issues” is more than just a Drake song, it’s something you have to face everyday of your life. Frank Underwood is not an exception to this rule and he understands that very well(too well actually).

You never know who is out there to get you or to double cross you so be careful! Even though Underwood may look like he’s paranoid at times, I still think that his approach is what gives him the advantage on everybody else.

Adversity is just around the corner sometimes, so I think it’s a good thing to keep a “expect the best but prepare for the worst” type of mentality through whatever you do.


3 F**ck The Rules

 Even if you only watched one episode or just 15 minutes of “House Of Cards”, there is one thing you understand from the get go: It’s Frank’s way or no way. We all get caught up at times, society wants us to behave a certain way, our job requires certain codes or sometimes it’s social pressure that kicks in.

The truth about all this is the fact that you have to set your own rules and you have to live with it regardless. Frank kills people, manipulate others and crush his opponents with no mercy and he enjoys it (that’s why we watch the show in the first place right?)

Of course I would not recommend you to use Frank’s methods but his mindset is still a blueprint to follow.

To conclude, I would like to emphacize on the fact that you don’t have to look up only to fictionnal characters to unleash the baddass in you. There’s a Frank Underwood in every city, neigborhood, office and even in you!

The End Of An Era And A New Start: Dress To Kill Magazine Goes Digital

A New World Order



I hate to break it down to you so abruptly but the world is changing, the world as we knew it, the way we consume, the way we think and even that good old Dress To Kill magazine is going through it.

Read More: Learn About The Black History In Montreal With This New City Tour

As a young and inexperienced blogger back in 2016, I felt deep in my earth that paper was a dying medium and that the internet was about to carry the torch.

a hundreds of blog posts later, multiple attempts at building an online presence and literally trying to digitize the aesthetics & creativity I saw in magazines growing up.


I must admit 2 things: 1. what it takes to make fashion or information enjoyable is very hard to put together and 2 building an audience on or offline is a GREAT feat.

I grew to admire and respect my peers in traditional media because they made the most out of nothing at a time where Facebook and all those outlets were not a thing.

In case you didn’t know, Dress To Kill magazine is not your average magazine by any shape or form.

Promoting Canadian art and fashion from province to province was something seemingly unthinkable but they got it done.


From iconic covers with Lenny Kravitz and more iconic nights at le Mount Stephen to bring the whole industry under the same roof, DTK got it done.

Don’t take what I’m saying as a farewell note because today actually mark a rebirth for the publication.

Indeed, while the world was going all over the place, they went on a well thought out rebrand.

As you might have guessed, the biggest take away from this is the stoppage of the paper version of the magazine.


The focus is now digital but as I told you earlier, DTK doesn’t go halfway.

Their new platform will include an online boutique which once again is going to focus on shedding light on Canadian creators for men and women.

Do you think more magazines are going to make a full transition to digital?

We Ask A Personal Development Coach How To Overcome The Ins and Outs Of The Crisis

It’s all about your point of view



marc dumaine, personal development coach, covid-19

Everything You Need to Know Through The Lens Of A Personal Development Coach

I’m always amazed at how people like to stigmatize the role or relevance of a personal development coach. They’re quick to label it a scam, a fad, something based on nothing but little they did know, they’re coaches around the world who impacts millions and millions of people in a life changing way. I was looking for the equivalent of a Tony Robbins in Quebec, my research undoubtedly came back to the same name: Marc Dumaine.

Read More: Here’s What I’ve Learned About Myself Since The Coronavirus Crisis Started

Mr Dumaine is more than a personal development coach, he’s a man with a story.

Not your average story either. From overcoming alcohol and drug abuse to obtaining a MBA to running campaigns for some of the biggest corporations in this province. Here’s a man of many battles.


Honorable mention too, these days Marc is focused on creating an international platform to impact as many people he possibly can.

marc dumaine, personal development coach

The bottom line is this. This personal development coach is not unfamiliar with trials and tribulations, changes and transitions.

That’s why to me, in a time like this where everything is doing a 180 degree, I had to pick his brain and ask him how can you and I get over.

In this Q&A, we indeed ask Marc Dumaine about several things such as how to bounce back from the crisis, his keys to success and much more.




#1 How did you figure yourself out as a future entrepreneur and what was the key factor that made you take that route?

I was always an artist at heart and found that I didn’t it in any mole.  After completing my MBA, I realized that my biggest assets were my differences.  I decided at that moment to stop following what people expected from me and launched my own business.  To me being an entrepreneur is an art form in itself. I have never regretted that choice since I launched Asana Coaching 10 years ago.

#2 How can someone go from being self-employed to an entrepreneur making money without physically being there?

The internet is booming with opportunities right now ! Even with the COVID-19, there is a redefinition of the way people consume products and services ! It is a TIME for being creative and look into endless opportunities ! Get out of our comfort zone and start being inspired by people who are already doing it ! Then, build yourself a right game plan with an amazing branding, and you are all set for the best adventure of your life.

#3 What are the pros and cons of being a consultant?

The pros are definitely the freedom it gives you in terms of choosing your schedule, the services you want to offer, the different partnerships you can build and finally, having a real impact in your client’s lives !

The biggest con I think is the loneliness that comes from working on your own and often alone ! You also have the insecurity of never having a stable income.  This life is not made for everybody ! 


#4 What would be the achievement you’re most proud of and why?

The biggest achievement for me is to have never given up ! In my 10 years as an entrepreneur, I could have gone bankrupt a few times, I could have been discouraged for so many reasons… but my faith in what I was doing kept me going ! It is a hard industry where you are competing against so many people and you have to realize that you have never made it ! You have to renew yourself every day, offer the top of the top and always evolve as a human being and expert ! I am very proud to still be there today, stronger than ever.

#5 What entrepreneurs should learn from the Coronavirus crisis?

I think we have to realize that we can’t just keep running all the time ! The anxiety, the stress and the adrenaline are very dangerous ! We talk a lot of profitability, performance but we tend to forget to talk about happiness and well-being ! I hope this time brings more humanity into entrepreneurs’ lives ! 

#6 Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

Without wanting to sound over the top, I truly believe that I will have built my brand into an international platform that will include wellness retreats worldwide, TV shows, a one-man show, a few books and real estate projects ! No pressure ! LOL Seriously, I am a kid at heart and developing my business is the best adventure that life has given me ! Watch out world, I am coming. 🙂

#7 What would be the main thing entrepreneurs around the world should learn from you?

That I almost died three times from drugs and alcohol ! That I was the mos unhappy and insecure person for the two thirds of my life ! That i was bullied and rejected for being different ! And in the end, I am the living proof that anything is possible when you don’t give up on yourself and your life ! 


#8 What would be your 3 keys to success ?

1- You are 100% responsible for your choices, attitude, perceptions and mindset

2- There are no mistakes, only feedback !

3- Only accept what’s 10/10 for you ! That is a sign that you are treating yourself life the most important person on your life.

If you’re interested in seeing him in action, he’s doing a Facebook live tonight at 7:30 pm and if you’re looking for some light in these dark times, that’s the place to be.
